We don’t know what Shawty Lo is going to do with the money he gets from his Oxygen Show, but Honey Boo Boo’s mother is being smart with her daughter’s finances. Mama June says that the money being made from the hit show, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” is going to be put into a trust fund for her daughter, so that when she turns 18, she’s going to be in good economic shape.
Honey Boo Boo may be a small child, but there’s nothing small about her financial haul, which comes to the tune of $15,000 – $20,000 per episode. The funds are divided equally into accounts for all of the children: Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, 7; Lauryn, 12; Jessica, 15; Anna, 18, and the baby Kaitlyn.
“I want my kids to look back and say, ‘Mama played it smart. Not like those other reality TV people,’” Mama June said to TMZ. “TLC puts the money into the girls’ trust accounts for me and then I get an e-mail telling me how much everyone gets.”
She also says that their father makes all of the money that the family needs to get by, and that no matter how much they bring in from the show, they are now going to waste it on material items.
